DR. JOSE ARGUELLES
Jose Arguelles, (born 1939), planetary whole systems anthropologist, received his Ph.D. in Art History and Aesthetics from the University of Chicago in 1969. In a distinguished career as an educator, he taught at Princeton University, University of California, Evergreen State College, San Francisco State University, San Francisco Institute of Art, the Naropa Institute, the University of Colorado, and The Union Graduate School.
His pioneering books resulting from investigations into human whole systems include: Mandala (1972), A Psychophysical Aesthetic (1972), The Transformative Vision: Reflections on the Nature and History of Human Expression (1975) (1992), and most importantly, Earth Ascending: An illustrated Treatise on the Law Governing Whole Systems (1984, 1988).
As one of the founders of Earth Day, 1970 (First Whole Earth Festival, Davis, California. 1970), Arguelles is a career activist for peace and the planetary transformation of consciousness. With his wife and partner, Lloydine, they founded the Planet Art Network (1983), promoting the revival of the Nicholas Roerich Peace Pact and Banner of Peace (1935). Combining investigations of the Roerich Peace Pact with his lifetime study of the mathematics and prophesies of the Mayan Calendar, Arguelles initiated the Harmonic Convergence, August 16-17, 1987, global meditation and planetary peace event.
Following his unraveling of the Mayan calendar code in his international best seller, The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology (1987), Arguelles and his wife continued scientific and mathematic investigations of the timing frequency underlying the Mayan calendar system of ancient Central America. The result of their research was the discovery of the 12:60 - 13:20 timing frequencies and the breakthrough set of tools and proofs of the mathematics of fourth-dimensional time, Dreamspell: the Journey of Timeship Earth 2013 (1991, 1992), the Thirteen Moon Calendar (1992), A Treatise on Time Viewed from its Own Dimension (1992), and finally, Telektonon: the Talking Stone of Prophesy, the thirteen moon calendar, prophesy, game, and universal peace plan (1993-94).
